. >> eliot: good evening. i'm eliot spitzer and this is "viewpoint." the first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign is over. president obama could be forgiven if he wanted to press the reset button. the candidates were all smiles as they came out shook hands in denver last night but when the 90-minute debate was over, mitt romney was the only contender with a reason to keep smiling. according to a cnn poll, 67% of adults thought romney won the debate compared to just 25% who picked the president. 46% of undecided voters in a cbs poll gave the win to romney to just 22% for mr. obama. nearly a third of the undecideds were undecided. romney's positive rating rose above 50% for the first time in this campaign in a reuters poll. the president's ratings stayed unchanged at 56%. romney stayed on the attack even though his positions were to be charitable and flatly untrue. here's some of what he said about his tax plan and the economy. >> romney: i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. my plan is not to put in place any t

that president obama delivered on mitt romney. that is my analysis. now we go to al gore eliot spitzer, jennifer granholm john fugelsang. i can't wait to hear what you thought. thought. >> i agree with you. this was a takedown many my opinion. i thought he got a lot of really strong hits on governor romney that went unanswered and the ones that governor romney did try to answer, i didn't think he did that well. governor romney himself had some moments, but i think overall it was a clear win for president obama. if i could just make one other point here. i think that it was interesting that romney tried to move airway from the image he has cultivated for this long campaign of being a hawk and leaning towards military interventions, just as we saw him in the previous debates try to move away from his positions on giving tax cuts to the wealthy, we saw him in this debate moving away from a hawk-ish position on our military strategy, and he ended up essentially endorsing a great many of the positions that president obama has taken and has implemented very skillfully in
